I often come up with ideas late at night. I’ve long kept a pad and pen by my bed for night-time visions (non-substance induced). Many of these turn out to be pretty bad in the cold light of day. But a few get some development time. And very occasionally they make it into a fully finished form. This cheeky pug was one of the lucky (!) ones who went the full cycle. From the cradle to the easel… and now on to your wall?
I give you ‘The DogFather’. For all the movie, mafia, gangster, pug lovers out there!
Ohhh… they’re new, they’re street, they’re hot, they’re sexy, they’re funky, they’re originals… they are my – dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum…
‘New Artworks’. Hmmm… should have considered a better name there. Happy viewing you lovely person you.

‘It is hard to find a gift that delights my husband. This year I commissioned a custom portrait from Jay Fortune. Larry was not only delighted, he was moved to tears. The portrait now hangs in our dining room where it brings all of us on-going joy.
Working with Jay was a pleasure. The portrait arrived safely and speedily. Jay is a thoughtful and collaborative painter. I felt I was part of the creative process. I wasn’t sure a custom portrait of this quality was within our reach but it was surprisingly affordable.
My husband is always gracious about the Father’s Day ties and books we give him. But this year he was truly speechless and moved. I am so happy to have found a way to show him how special he is to us.’ – M. Hass, USA.
So nice to have done this one for really awesome people! If you’re awesome (how can you not be, you’re reading this!) and are looking for a special commission, please get in touch.
